Pity Party

Break out the cheese and crackers. 

It’s one of those days. 


I didn’t want to leave the house.  Didn’t want to clean myself up.  Barely got out of bed. 

Funny how we can be on such a life high and then come crashing down. 

I had a doctor’s appointment this morning.  I hate doctors.  I didn’t want to talk about all the things that are wrong with me.  I definately didn’t want to get on that scale.  I’d rather go about my day not publicly acknowledging my flaws thank you very much. 

Although a lot of good came out of that doctor’s appointment, it was still very painful.  On the bright side – I have been refered to three specialists that will help me out personally and I hope will also be able to help our family multiply.  Since it will be a while before they can fit me into their schedule, we’ll have to play the waiting game on this one.  I’m hoping the doctors will be personable and professional.  Kind of like a cracker jack box.  You never know what you’re going to get as a prize. 

I’ve also realized that I may be in desperate need of a Momcation.  Used to be that I would just want time alone with the man, but curiously, this is not the case anymore.  I’ve never been one to want to spend time alone.  I’d much rather talk to a stranger than have to listen to silence.  Funny how things change after you have children. 

A weekend alone.  No cell phone.  No TV.  No one screaming for me.  Nothing to clean.  No meals to make.  The beach, some sun, a couple of girlfriends, a good book and throw some wine in there for good measure.

Sounds like bliss.  Sounds like a Momcation in my book. 

Doctor’s appointment and Momcation desires aside, it hasn’t been a terrible day.  Just not a happy one in my book.  I’m trying to look around and count my blessings, but I can’t get the funky cloud out from above my head. 

Somedays the Mommy needs a time out.  Mine’s today.

I’m hoping you’re having a better day than me.  Maybe you need a Momcation.  Maybe you need a time out.  Here’s my advice:  TAKE IT!  You deserve it! 

Here’s to all the Mommies out there looking for a better day tomorrow!

I agree with you! I need a Momcation too. Hopefully your experience with the physicians in Greenville will be positive. I sort of got thrown into seeing an OB-GYN here, was referred from the ER to ECU OB-GYN, so I didn’t get time to do any research about them. However, I was VERY impressed. I can give you more details if you want.

Better days are on the horizon! I hope you’re feeling better! If I can do anything, let me know : )
